the urethane highback makes tweaking out in the park really fun. however, they can be a little flimsy when it comes to big drops and jumps, and riding through chunder will wear you out really damn fast when you're riding these. I rock a stiffer binder on my pow board, but if you just need a park binding (or only ride park/urban), these are really fun. Also, the footbeds are a little annoying to lift up (there's no good way to grip it. you pretty much have to just use a screwdriver), but they shed snow like it's nothing so you don't get ice buildup underfoot.
